2014 Workplace Survey - Police celebrate positive gains

2014 Workplace Survey - Police celebrate positive gains

22 April 2014 - The results of NZ Police's 2014 Workplace Survey are being delivered across the organisation, with headline results showing a significant increase in engagement, says Commissioner Mike Bush.

Mr. Bush says he is pleased with the results of the independent survey, undertaken by IBM, which show an improvement in a number of key areas, and favourable comparison with the State Sector Benchmark.

"As in previous surveys, Police score commendably high in our sense of camaraderie, pride and achievement in the positive impact of our work in the community," says Mr. Bush.

"Our people demonstrate exceptional levels of commitment to the work we do.

The results showed that engagement had risen significantly against last year's results, and against the State Sector benchmark. Staff identified as 'fully engaged' were also significantly higher, both against 2013 and the State Sector.

"These are good results for our organisation, and are evidence of the positive gains we have made in making Police a great place to work."

The headline results:
• The survey closed with a final response rate of 73%. This is slightly down from 2013 (74.8%).
• Our engagement index has risen 2.2 percentage points to 73.3 which is significantly higher than the benchmark of 69.3. Our performance index has risen by 1.1 percentage points to 64.7(marginally ahead of the State Sector benchmark of 63.8).
• The number of people in Police identified by the survey as being ‘fully engaged’ rose significantly from 24.5 percent in 2013 to 27.5 percent in 2014. This is considerably higher than the state sector benchmark of 19.3 percent.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
